In the Now
Since 2016 I have been making Glass Cathedrals that explicitly deal with politics and political activism. Each Glass Cathedral was created and exhibited separately (unlike in other collections) but I have brought them together here to be viewed in one place.
Larger than Life: George Floyd
April 2021. 100% of sales will be donated to PlayMarin, CA.
I wanted to mark this moment in the struggle of the BLM movement as Derek Chauvin stands trial for George Floyd’s murder, and try raise some money for www.playmarin.org - a fantastic local organisation that provides opportunities for children of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in Southern Marin, CA to learn and grow together through play.
The people behind it are also involved in many other efforts to support, engage and uplift the community in Marin City, CA and beyond, from offering free community skate-boarding lessons to voter education and registration, to providing essentials for homeless people in the winter.
The mural of George Floyd that I’ve used in the background was created by Berlin artist @eme_freethinker
